Gitte Dyrhagen

Studenteropgave: Speciale


The thesis analyzes how Denmark as a donor government can best contribute to promote and protect human rights in "fragile states" which are characterized by their lack of capacity and willingness to undertake such duties. This is done by comparing central debates and analytical frameworks with two case studies, Afghanistan and Nepal.
